Electric target retrievals assist marksmen in taking a closer look at their shots, and certified instructors fluent in English and Spanish assist gun handlers of all skill sets by promoting firearm safety at classes. There, first timers can learn proper gun cleaning and firearm-handling techniques, and experienced shooters can improve their aim in marksmanship-qualification programs or monthly challenge contests.
